“Excellent base for Dartmoor area. Great for the less abled and those with children.”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We booked Acorn Cottage a little late in the day for a long weekend visiting family in the area. It is well placed just off the A30 before Okehampton through a number of narrow country lanes. Alison, the owner, will email detailed directions in advance (including specific trees as landmarks!) but I suggest you use a combination of Google Streetview and Google Maps to view the route in and then mark the exact point on your satnav before setting off. The cottage is within the grounds of a farm and has its own parking space to the side with direct access into the main double bedroom which is downstairs - the property is designed for easy access for the less abled. A small entrance hallway offers plenty of storage space for shoes, bags and coats. The kitchen is small but has an oven/grill, hob, microwave, fridge freezer, toaster and kettle, and is well stocked with pots, pans, cutlery and crockery. A delicious touch - Alison left the components of a Devon cream tea in the kitchen along with some milk and some eggs from her own hens. There is a large walk-in shower wetroom and toilet downstairs with all the expected rails etc for the less abled. The downstairs bedroom is of a good size with a wardrobe (iron and ironing board inside), bedside cabinets and a TV/video combi. We're a bit spoiled at home with a king size duvet so the double one on the bed took some fighting over! The bed was comfortable enough, however, and there's a good selection of books on a shelf behind if you wanted to indulge. Upstairs to the left is a lounge area with sofa, armchair, a second comfortable chair and a TV/DVD combi. A large window offers some decent views over farmland during the day and the room is quite cosy at night. On the other side of the landing is a twin bedroom. This was fine for our 16 month old son using the supplied travel cot, the blinds on the velux windows making the room pitch black.

All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable stay (although we weren't in the property that much). Comfortable and well equipped (albeit looking a little tired in places), it's a good choice for the less able (although the lounge area upstairs may be an issue) and good for those with children. Acorn Cottage is an excellent base for exploring Dartmoor and surrounds and we would certainly use it again.

Thank you for your kind comments and I'm glad to hear that you had a good stay. I bought the cottage as a going concern, complete with all the contents but agree that some of the fittings are a little past their best and am undertaking a continuing programme of updating and re-decorating - I'll definitely bear in mind a king-size duvet when it comes round to replacing these!
